What We’re Reading…. ABU TOAMEH: Is the Muslim Brotherhood Plotting to Take Over Jordan?
The latest article for the Gatestone Institute (May 30, 2012) by Palestinian journalist Khaled Abu Toameh, Muslim Brotherhood Plotting to Take Over Jordan?, is especially timely as JINSA’s 2012 delegation of American Generals and Admirals just returned from Israel and Jordan where they met with senior military, intelligence, and political officials.
According to Abu Toameh, who has briefed several JINSA groups in Israel:
Jordanian government officials say there are growing signs that the kingdom’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood organization has plans to overthrow the regime.
The organization, according to the officials, has succeeded in hijacking the anti-corruption and pro-democracy protests that have swept Jordan over the past year.
Today, most of the anti-regime demonstrations throughout the kingdom are being initiated and led by Muslim Brotherhood supporters whose goal is to turn Jordan into an Islamic republic.
Many Arabs feel that President Barack Obama’s endorsement of the Muslim Brotherhood has emboldened the Islamists and increased their appetite to drive moderate and secular rulers out of the Arab world.
